Young is a village in Saskatchewan, Canada. The economy is dominated by local agriculture and the nearby Mosaic Potash mine.[4]

History[edit]

Young came into being with the coming of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. It was incorporated as a village in 1910, named for F.G. Young, land agent.

A limestone kiln producing 1000 bushels of lime a day was established in the town at the north-west end of 2nd Avenue.

The village has a population of less than 300 people. It has a 3 sheet curling rink with artificial ice and hockey arena, a swimming pool, golf course, ball diamonds and playground.[5]

A fire destroyed the village's oldest building, the former Young Hotel, on November 12, 2011. The hotel was built in 1910.[6]
